Australia's iiNet Runs 100Gbe on Juniper T1600

iiNet, a leading Australian DSL Internet service provider, migrated its backbone to Juniper Networks T1600 Core Routers at the beginning of this year and started a two-month trial of Juniper's 100GbE interface cards in May.

iiNet currently delivers broadband, telephony and IPTV services across its fixed network infrastructure, with more than 1.3 million customer service agreements in place. With the roll-out of the government-owned National Broadband Network (NBN), Australian ISPs would soon be able to deliver Gigabit services via fiber-to-the-premises connections.

"We're passionate about providing our customers with the very best service and technology," said Greg Bader, chief technology officer at iiNet. "Rather than waiting for the NBN to be rolled out around the country, we're continuously upgrading the iiNet network so our customers can have the very best experience. Partnering with Juniper Networks gives us confidence in the fact that we're using the most advanced technology as we expand our services around the country."
